I followed the above URL and did what was suggested there. So "That 
didn't work" was refering to

# chflags -R noschg /usr/obj/usr
# rm -rf /usr/obj/usr
# cd /usr/src
# make cleandir
# make cleandir

Nothing seems to be wrong here really.

That will not be possible.

I'll wipe out /usr/src as well and re-cvsup, then build from single user 
mode for minimal intervention by shells and environments and see whether 
that might help.
